Distillery Tours

We have started running tours here at the Anno Distillery so we can introduce everybody to our beautiful copper-pot still, Patience.

Tours start at £12 per person, which includes a £5 discount off a 70cL bottle if you purchase on the day. On arrival we welcome you with an Anno Gin and Tonic and then take you through the short history of our distillery in Marden, the process of distillation and the botanicals used to create Anno Gin. A neat gin can then be sampled so that you are able to appreciate the complexity and the super smoothness of our handcrafted artisan gin.

Longer tours at £25 are available and also include a tutored tasting of five artisan gins to tantalise your taste buds and discover your inner gin passion. This tasting is designed to be fun as well as informative and includes everyone from those new to gin to avid gin drinkers.

Current tour dates for June & July include:
       Tuesday 10th June 6.30pm
       Wednesday 25th June 6.30pm
       Wednesday 9th July 2.30pm
